Spring 2011

During Spring 2011 building of the system started. The rail system and its mounting grid were assembled in the premises of Aalto Design Factory. Also a demonstration model of the manipulator was realized. Drive electronics for a 2 dof. camera scanner was designed and prototyped, batteries for energy system were explored and use of Microsoft Kinect for 3D mapping was explored. Further work on software was conducted.
